The resource offers a fun and interactive activity to introduce students to the impacts of climate change on animal populations.
Using a game format, students role-play polar bears and their interactions with the habitat components of food, water, shelter and space. The result is a better understanding of how polar bear populations are affected by changes to their habitat especially those caused by climate change. Students gather and record data at the end of each round on a Polar Bear Population Chart included in the resource.
An easy-to-implement and fun way to introduce habitat functions and climate change effects. The activity can be used to introduce other important themes such as population dynamics and human impact on the environment. Supports grade 4 to 7 science and math outcomes.
